Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed
To make these rings you'll need:
  1. Craft wire - 18-20 gauge,
  2. Craft pliers,
  3. Mandrel,
  4. Pearl beads - small size,
  5. Ruler.

Step 2: Making Beaded Swirls

Before starting you'll need to measure your ring size and convert it into inches or centimeters.

Technique-1:
Hold any one end of the wire without cutting the wire from the bundle,
Use the flat nose plier to bend 0.5 cm of the wire as shown in the second picture of this step,
Insert the bead into the bent part of the wire,
Now carefully circle the wire around the bead 2-3 times to create a swirly pattern around it.

Technique-2:
You can also insert the bead into the wire and circle the wire from both sides to create swirly pattern around the bead.
See the third picture of this step.

We are going to use both techniques for making the rings.

Step 3: Ring-1

Use technique-1 for making the first beaded swirl,
After making the first beaded swirl measure and leave the wire straight (double the length of your ring size + 4-5 cm for swirls), then cut the wire from the bundle.

Make another beaded swirl on the other end of the wire, making sure both swirls face towards each other.

When you're done making the beaded swirls, simply bend the straight part of the wire into half and tighten the bent part using a flat nose plier.
